Wimbledon 2017: Mannarino vs. Djokovic Round of 16 Prediction

Adrian Mannarino (FRA) Novak Djokovic (SRB) [2]

Adrian Mannarino faces a 3-time Wimbledon champion and 4 time Wimbledon finalist who just won a tune-up event on grass.  Djokovic is also likely feeling disrespected and perhaps is drinking Gil Water (see Open).  Obviously, the twenty-nine year old from France is up against it.  His clever baseline game and nice touch may give him enough to keep a set close and take it, but one has to expect Novak Djokovic’s return game, movement, and experience to win in either 3 or 4 sets.  My guess is that Team Djokovic is urging him to win quickly so he can recover and refocus on Tomas Berdych.  I think Djokovic wins in an efficient manner.

      On the super coach front, what do you think of Connors working with Kerber through the US hardcourt tour?

      1. Oh, I haven’t heard this! But, that would be exciting. He worked with Roddick for a while. Maybe he’s just the spark she needs to get her game back.
